Gamston Medical Centre was founded in 1994 and has been serving patients in the surrounding area ever since. The GP Principal, Dr Linda Kandola, established the practice and, with her loyal practice team, has supported her patients with great skill and dedication for more than 26 years.
From April 2020, Dr Kandola will step back from her role as a GP Partner, but will continue to work 3 days a week at the practice. For several months, PartnersHealth, an organisation formed by Rushcliffe GPs, has been supporting the practice, and will now take over its running. PartnersHealth was established in 2015, and has been assisting local GPs, setting up new services for patients, and working with local NHS partners ever since. Dr Neil Fraser, a local GP for 13 years, will become the Clinical Lead.
As patients, you will notice little difference, as we will continue to maintain the high standards and levels of service you have been used to. We are very proud of how well the practice team has adapted to the changes during a health crisis, and we are also very grateful for the support and co-operation of our patients.
The NHS is facing unprecedented challenges but the Rushcliffe GP practices have decided to work hard together to improve our existing services, develop new locally based services and provide the best care we can to local people.
As a local family Doctor I see lots of patients and I will bring that experience to influence change and improve services in Rushcliffe.
As Independent Chair for PartnersHealth, we will put the patients care at the centre of all our plans. Helping Rushcliffe GP practices excel in customer service and exceed patients’ expectations.
It is important we work together to ensure that we have the right service at the right time in the right place, bringing together hospital services closer to patients homes.
